With $560, he can buy 12 pairs of brand A jeans with $20 left over (notice that 12 x 45 = $540), or he can buy 11 pairs of brand A jeans and 1 pair of brand B jeans with no money left over (notice that 11 x 45 + 65 = $560). Regardless of which option he chooses, the greatest number of pairs of jeans he can buy is 12.

Answer: C

The answer is 12.
560-65 = 495
495/45 = 11

11+1 = 12
